Chapter 1 Hypothetical Case 2 (Answer using the IRAC Method)

Chapter 2 Practice Hypothetical Case # 3

• Yogo Apparel, a manufacturer of women’s athletic wear, has seen explosive growth in sales of its most popular yoga pant over the past two months, thanks to some very flattering publicity. Sales are so strong, in fact, that the company’s U.S.-based supplier cannot keep up with demand. The company’s president, Susan Keough, receives a bid from an offshore supplier that promises to make the pants in its own facilities at 10 times the capacity of the U.S. supplier and at two-thirds of the cost.

Keough asks one of her managers, Steven Little, to investigate the offshore suppliers’ history of workers’-rights complaints. The news is not good: Little reports that the supplier has been accused of multiple instances of worker abuse, including forced overtime, sexual harassment, and suppression of organized labor. Keough and Little approach several other vendors, but none can produce the quantity Yogo needs at the price it is able to pay.

• Imagine that you are in Keough’s situation. Apparel stores and Yogo’s own website are inundated with orders for the yoga pants. Yogo cannot keep up with the demand without looking elsewhere. Yogo’s stock has risen dramatically as a result of the surge in sales, and shareholders expect the growth to continue. What are the possible ramifications for Yogo if Keough chooses to use this supplier? What type of exposure does Yogo have—legally, in terms of potential damage to its reputation, and in terms of risk to profit?

What if you are in Little’s position, and Keough chooses to move forward with the offshore supplier? What would you do?
